    Easy to make, yes. However, in getting it up to temperature, mine burned. It never even got to the posted temperature. Maybe my stove is too hot or my thermometer not very good, but this was one big fail for me.

    Wow! This was so easy and tastes great, too. I made it in less than 1/2 an hour, and it took that much time to harden up. I dipped some pieces in chocolate... they taste just like a crunchie! Thanks for this terrific recipe, Luschka!
